Alcatel is to employ an extra 1,250 research and development staff in India by the end of 2006. At the same time it is boosting manufacturing of mobile and fixed telecoms equipment in the country.

Alcatel currently has 750 R&D staff in India and has just opened a new production line for mobile base station equipment at a plant in Mankapur in northern India.

The French giant is also considering moving production of DSL broadband access equipment to India too.

Alcatel said it already supplies 50% of equipment in India’s fixed line operator phone networks, and it now wants to expand its mobile infrastructure business in the country.

Alcatel recently exited the mobile handset market after falling too far behind organisations such as Nokia, Motorola and Sony Ericsson in development.
